Subject: Re: Broken ondemand scheduler in Linux 2.6.30+ on Pentium IVs

...except that conservative has the same latency threshold as ondemand, 
which I'm sure wasn't supposed to be the case. I've added the cpufreq 
list to Cc:.

(Summary: p4-clockmod had its latency changed to avoid ondemand using 
it, which was done to avoid the performance impact that ondemand 
generates on p4s. I thought that conservative was still supposed to work 
here, but as it has the same latency threshold it doesn't)
